Father Ragheed

June 9, 2008

I think that many in the Catholic World know about the martyrdom of Fr. Ragheed and Subdeacons Ghassan, Wahid, and Basman. Here are a few pictures of them. Some of the pictures are from a memorial or their funeral. I can’t read Arabic so I don’t know for sure:

Fr. Ragheed and Friends.

It would appear that Subdeacon Basman is at Fr. Ragheed’s left (our right); and at the far left next to the woman with the orange shirt is Fares who was killed (martyred?) during the kidnapping of the Bishop of the webmaster for http://www.ragheed.net.  (These pictures for the most part come from that website.)

Here we see Fr. Ragheed’s body lying in state.

Holy Martyrs Ragheed, Ghassan, Wahid, and Basman, pray for us!

First Post

May 6, 2008

Well, this is my first post as a blogger. I was invited to Simple Sinner’s blog as a contributor. But since I was allowed to also start my own blog, here it is.

I’m not sure what direction this blog will take as The Black Cordelias is a Catholic Blog. I may blog on health care topics, parenting, history, religion, etc… Who knows?

So far not much going on…
